Chocolate Peanut Fudge Bars (Midwest)

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Brenda.

I got this recipe from the inside of the cream cheese carton- Yum! I do recommend doubling the chocolate cookie crumbs as some reviewers have noted it doesn't cover the bottom of the pan very well with only 2 cups.

I love this! It combines my favorite things: peanuts, chocolate and cream cheese! I'm definitely making this for my next bake sale!
